Hey, guys. So, as we all probably know, Minecraft just updated to 1.4.4 today, but I have an HP computer with Windows 7; Sooooo.... I can't connect to LAN World. Jeb said that he fixed it so that Mac or Linux users can do LAN World now, but now I can't. I know that he was able to do that by changing the base IP address of a LAN World. Any ideas? :(

Moved to Tech Support.

Do you get any error message or anything? What happens when you try to connect?

Same here. I have a Dell Studio that is only a year old. It has Windows 7 and it's a good laptop. I have never had any problems. My friend has a one year old Toshiba that also has Windows 7. We both updated to Minecraft 1.4.4 about an hour ago. She tried to join my LAN world that she has been on many times before but it says 'Connection refused: connect' when she tries to connect. This is very frustrating. We have tried everything! Nothing seems to be working. Maybe it's a bug?

Let me guess: When you first open the LAN world, it says it's on 0.0.0.0:<some port number>, right?

Appears to be a bug: https://mojang.atlas...3#comment-21487

So not much that anyone can do until Mojang fixes it. They said it was suppose to work, but apparently it doesn't. Quite a few people have reported the problem, including myself.

Actually, it says that it's hosted on 0.0.0.1:25565, but yeah. It's basicly the same thing. :P

I didn't even thing about trying it on my laptop until now. I'm running Linux on it, and under 1.4.2, it would bind to 127.0.0.1. But now with 1.4.4, it's binding to 0.0.0.0.

Different, but still not working.

Ok. I just downgraded back to 1.4.2. I'll just use that until they find a fix for it. Thanks for helping out, everyone! :)

I'm unlocking this thread and moving it  back to the Tech Support forum due to some additional information I found, and people might want to ask questions on.

There is now a 1.4.5 PreRelease out that supposedly fixes this issue:
Spoiler

If you don't want to download the prerelease, there is also a work around:

Find the IP address of the computer hosting the LAN world (IPCONFIG or IFCONFIG from terminal/command window, depending on what OS you have), and instead of selecting the LAN world from the list, click on "Direct Connect" and enter the IP address and the random port assigned (the port is displayed when you start the LAN world. I just tested with Windows 7 and Linux (don't have a Mac), and it worked.

On a related note, I can't connect to any home-run servers. An issue with MC? MY computer? What?

This is a different issue than a LAN world. Please start a new topic for your problem.

Do you both have the latest version of Minecraft? Can you do a direct connect?
